Micah got me this for my birthday this year:

the original Polaroid sx-70.
because over Christmas i’d confessed my secret adoration
for polaroids, how they hold that
that you can’t get with any other kind of film
and the out of focus look, the distorted
faded colors
almost otherwordly, almost
something forgotten but found again.
so he bought me a camera and it actually works
and i don’t want to know how much it cost
and the pictures are distorted and blurred and
not very clear but they hold this
softness, and the way
the pictures glow
you understand?  here.
these are the pictures i’ve taken so far
(that have turned out).

[first picture i took; overexposed; had to use 600 film with the sx, which you’re not supposed to do.]

[beautiful.  taken with a modified filter, aka a sunglasses lense.]

[roses on my window sill]
